Article 48 Section D 


Employees are expected to listen to radio and/or television broadcasts to learn when an appropriation or continuing resolution has been signed or when the debt ceiling has been raised. The Employer and the Union are free to negotiate, at the national level, additional methods of notifying employees about the conclusion of the furlough. Employees will then be expected to report to work no later than four (4) hours after that announcement. In the event the announcement contains instructions on reporting to work later than that, employees will be expected to follow those instructions. A liberal leave policy will be in effect on the day employees are to return to work. Employees who travel during the time of the furlough will be expected to return to work in accordance with the terms of this Article or with the more specific instructions.



*Please note that employees put on furlough for hardship are subject to these regulations.
